Like other topically organized introductory philosophy readers, this book is organized around the existence of God, knowledge and skepticism, mind and body, free will and determinism, ethics, and contemporary ethical debates, including abortion, euthanasia, and global hunger and poverty. 78 selections are grouped into six topical chapters-and the selections within those chapters are organized by argument. Vaughn's approach focuses students' attention on argumentation, where much of the philosophical work gets done.

The late Professor Reds Wolman in his Foreword to the award-winning second edition said, "This is not your ordinary textbook. Environmental Hydrology is indeed a textbook, but five elements often found separately combine here in one text to make it different. It is eclectic, practical, in places a handbook, a guide to fieldwork, engagingly personal and occasionally opinionated. ... and, perhaps most engaging to me, in places the authors offer personal views as well as more strongly worded opinions. The former often relate to evaluation of alternative approaches, or formulations, of specific solutions to specific hydrologic problems." The first and second editions were bestsellers and the third promises to educate people new to the field of hydrology and challenge professionals alike, with insightful solutions to classical problems as well as trendsetting approaches important to the evolving genre. The third edition enhances materials in the second edition and has expanded information on many topics, in particular, evapotranspiration, soil erosion, two-stage ditch design and applications, and stream processes. What’s New in the Third Edition: Presents new sections on rock structures in streams, hypoxia, harmful algal blooms, and agricultural practices to reduce nutrient discharges into water resources Enhances the format to aid the reader in finding tables, figures, and equations Contains more than 370 figures, 120 tables, 260 equations, 100 worked examples, 160 problems, and more than 1000 references Collectively, the authors have more than 130 years of international experience and the addition of John Lyon and Suzette Burckhard as co-authors expands the breadth of knowledge presented in this book. More than 60 scientists and engineers in Australia, Canada, Europe, and the United States provided assistance to round out the offerings and ensure applicability to hydrology worldwide.

The First Edition of Yookoso!: An Invitation to Contemporary Japanese was warmly and enthusiastically received by Japanese language instructors not only in North America, but also abroad. The preliminary chapters entitled "Getting Started" were a First Edition feature that many instructors and students found especially useful and effective for their introductory Japanese courses. In response to this positive response, we have revised and expanded these preliminary chapters as a primer to introduce learners to the Japanese language, providing them with a basic foundation for learning Japanese. Yookoso!: Getting Started with Japanese has been developed according to two basic premises: (1) proficient communication in the second language is the goal of foreign language instruction, and (2) the primary function of language is to allow people to communicate, interact, and negotiate meaning. Yookoso!: Getting Started with Japanese provides a starting point for oral and written communication and helps students to develop proficiency in the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, as well as in cultural awareness. With this emphasis on interaction in the classroom, students enjoy learning Japanese. The Yookoso! materials and approach have been extensively tested with beginning students of Japanese. In our experience, students become proficient in Japanese more quickly using the Yookoso! approach. The flexible framework of the Yookoso! materials accommodates various approaches to language teaching and different learning styles.
